  • "Lovely flat in an amazing central location in the Lakes, and with parking."

    Flat had everything we needed and was really comfortable. The owners had responded to previous feedback about the bathroom, so it was beautiful and clean when we stayed. We chose it together with our friends who stayed in Keswick Loft in the same courtyard so that we could spend time together but have our own space. We really appreciated being allowed a late checkout as noone was staying straight afterwards, though it did mean that we ended up going shopping in Keswick in the morning again!

  • "This is the second stay for us at Fox's Den."

    It's got a lovely and cosy feel to the place. Great location and added bonus of a parking space - it is a little tight for bigger cars but just takes a bit of manoeuvring. Bed is really comfy which is just what you need after a day walking. We love it here and already looking for when we can come back our next stay!!

  • "Cottage was lovely and overall very clean but the bathroom had a fair amount of black mould and a general lack of attention to detail when it comes to cleaning."

    There were areas around the shower that had accumulations of dirt in places that would be easy enough to clean

    Thanks for your comments. The bathroom has had it's usual spring clean in January, so hopefully better now Property Owner

  • "Bigger towels would be a bonus as well as a 10am check out so that your last night of holiday is not over-shadowed by the thought of a very early start."

    Leaky tap in kitchen (was reported). Apart from that, the flat was perfectly clean, well stocked with everything we needed and in a great location. We would definitely book this flat again.

  • "Signs of tiredness eg towels, shower mat."

    Unfortunately there was a very noisy upstairs neighbour who got up very early and went to bed very late - one night we were woken at 4am. Is there a soundproofing problem? We haven't experienced this in the past . We were disappointed to have to leave the property at 9am , when our booking details stated 10am.One hour makes a big difference, especially if you have been disturbed during the night. Not at all sure I would return here.

    Thank you for your comments. We take all comments on board. Having looked at the details that were sent, the check out time is listed as 9am on day of departure. Thank you. Property Owner

    Plus your private parking space at the rear of your accomodation etc. I would highly recomend the Fox's Den as a central base for anyone who enjoy the Norther Lake's etc. are just to chill out around thr town.

  • "The location of Fox's Den and car parking are excellent, but living areas in the cottage are basic compared with other cottages we have stayed in."

    The master bedroom does have a large king sized bed however which is a media bed ( TV, DVD and radio ).

  • "Lovely flat, great location in the town centre."

    The parking space is a real bonus. Loved the TV at the bottom of the bed. Had an issue with the shower which was promptly fixed. Some early morning noise from the road outside with deliveries, which didn't really bother us but may affect some people. Definitely stop here again.

  • "The flat is excellent if a little grubby."

    It's very dark inside so some things can't be seen until the lights are on (hair on sink, crumbs under sofa, food on hob, dust on wardrobe doors and mirrors). The cafes across the street are the only major downside. Drinkers making a lot of noise until well after 11.30pm followed by early risers heading for breakfast mean very little sleep. It's to be expected in a town but it's not for us so I don't think we'll return unfortunately because the accommodation really is superb.

    We're sorry you had these issues and will take your comments on board, but have never had problems with cleanliness before. There is sometimes some noise because we are so central in Keswick, and good weather encourages that! Hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

    The accommodation was central to all Keswick amenities. We enjoyed visiting many areas of the lakes for the first few days. However, we had to leave early Thursday morning as we were notified that Mr Gibbs had to attend a hospital appointment on Thursday evening in Middlesbrough

    Position in town great could walk everywhere. It was great to have own parking space but this outside area was very grubby. I understand there’s no choice re bins etc. but felt rear of property and the surrounding ones could do with a decorate. The communal selfclosing door didn’t close and lock properly, so it meant anyone could access the building if that door hadn’t been shut properly. Wouldn’t put me off, some noise from property above but overall a great stay.

  • "We have just returned from a week at Fox's Den, Keswick."

    The apartment is in central Keswick and so is ideal for all the many amenities the town has to offer. The apartment is very clean and well furnished. It has everything you need for a good stay. Appliances and heating are easy to use with clear instructions. Parking space is a bonus. The main entrance is not as beautiful as the apartment itself, but it is secure. There are also clear instructions what to do at the end of the break relating to Covid. It is clear that cleanliness is a high priority at this location. If you are considering booking a stay in Keswick, and plan on using the local pubs and restaurants, I would highly recommend you reconsider booking this town currently. Keswick used to have fantastic pubs, but now the pubs are restaurants that happen to serve beer, because of the Covid regulations. Many use a pre-booking system that have a two to three night delay. Some are on first come first served, but the queues are long. Most are just booked up all night. If you just require a few drinks, horror upon horror - just second class citizens. You are not allowed to drink inside but shown to a back yard or overfull beer garden. Not very pleasant with the rain we had during our stay. We tried twice but just stayed in at night. The town is too full currently and is not ready for the visitor numbers it had pre-Covid. We will book Keswick again, but not until Covid virus is beaten and things get back to normal. When we do book we will certainly try to book Fox's Den first.

    All required things present and nothing missing. Well decorated and beds v comfortable. Town either wasn’t noisy or we couldn’t hear any noise. Couldn’t adjust shower room radiator so room hot - slight waste of energy? Entrance passage and gate doesn’t do property justice - looks a bit unwelcoming but there’s little one can do about that I guess!

    The alley way was dirty and not pleasant to walk up in the evenings. people from the restaurant smoked and chatted outside below the rear bedroom window which was also unpleasant for a non smoker. If the price would have been lower then I would have given it higher marks but for that kind of money I expected it to be quiet. The key provider was excellent and should be praised for them allowing us to go in early and to be very attentive.

In the centre of the market town of Keswick, the delightfully named Fox's Den is a first-floor apartment, that's part of a new cottage build providing all the modern touches required for a great stay.

A communal entrance leads you to this modern apartment, Fox's Den sleeps up to 4 people and is ideal for families and couples looking for a getaway and the chance to explore this fantastic town and its surrounding areas.

Within the apartment, you will find a fully equipped kitchen in which meals can be prepared and enjoyed at the dining table, before finishing and relaxing in front of the TV in the comfortable lounge/diner area.

The apartment features two bedrooms, one of which is a master bedroom with an outstanding spotlit wardrobe and a king-size bed, plus its own remote-controlled TV built into the bed.

The other is a twin bedroom, beautifully panelled with oak floorboards.

A shower room with WC and basin is also included for guests to refresh after a long day.

Outside there is private parking for one car and the apartment provides views onto the delightful hustle and bustle of the street below.

Just a short walk across the road will take you to the restaurant.

Set in the heart of Keswick, just a short walk will take you to what this central Lake District town has to offer, including pubs with homecooked meals, fires and real ales, restaurants, shops, museums and even more just a few steps away.

Keswick is famed for its outstanding natural beauty, and there are a variety of walking tours available and short drives will take you to the top of Skiddaw Mountain or the beautiful Derwentwater Lake.

Further afield, Keswick is just 14 miles from Cockermouth, which is home to the beautiful National Trust property of Wordsworth House and Garden where visitors will have the chance to learn about the famed poet and experience life in the 18th century, as well as visit the Jennings Brewery.

In the other direction are the towns of Grasmere, Ambleside and Windermere, making this a great base from which to explore the Lakes.
